    Probably as classless as attacking a man’s sexuality like “Glory Days Grad.” His nickname is “Scandalous time when players could barely even read, but were allowed to play football anyway, but this was all covered up and even led to firing professors at a COLLEGE that spoke out since football is more important” Days.
